How Can I Quickly Proofread My Writing?

Updated: Jun 10


Use this “proofreading pointers” checklist for impressive writing in no time flat!

  • Do subjects and verbs agree in number (singular vs. plural)?

  • Do verb tenses correctly indicate timing and completion of actions?

  • Do pronouns and the nouns they replace (antecedents) agree in number (singular vs. plural)?

  • Do pronouns reflect the right gender and form (subjective vs. objective vs. possessive)?

  • Do independent clauses (have a subject and a verb) join together correctly (period vs. comma and conjunction vs. semi-colon vs. colon)?

  • Do transition words connect sentences and paragraphs for flow?

  • Do punctuation and spelling look error-free?
